Greetings to all Club members
I hope that as you are reading this week’s Club Bulletin, you are either getting ready for, or on your way to the Gala Cinema at Warrawong to enjoy ‘Eddie the Eagle ‘ or just arrived home after having a fun night with fellow Rotarians and friends.
I am so looking forward to this Friday’s meeting to hear our guest speaker Paula Smith talking about her involvement with MERCY SHIPS .
I first met and heard Paula in July last year during my 1st visit as President to St Mary’s Interact Club, where Paula was guest speaker .
Mercy Ships is a unique medical Charity that uses Hospital ships and ground based teams to deliver free surgery and health care to the poorest people in the developing world.
I promise you that Paula’s presentation and story is heartbreaking but inspirational .
Rotary has had a strategic partnership with Mercy Ships since 1987, providing much needed funds for vocational and medical training.
I do hope as many Club members as possible will make it along to Friday’s meeting to meet and hear Paula’s presentation. You will come away with incredible admiration for the work that Paula and her medical colleagues do.
Finally , it would be remiss of me not to pass on a huge thank you to our Club News Bulletin ‘putogethera ’ Betty Hassen. Betty is trying to enjoy a holiday covering Hong Kong, China and Japan , but put away the tourist maps each Wednesday morning to cut-paste-cut-paste the bulletin and gets it out to all of us in a timely fashion. That really is going ‘above and beyond’ ! thank you so much Betty.
I look forward to seeing you all on Friday morning,
Please remember to gather your friends and book your seats/table NOW for ‘Swing into Wings’ ….it’s going to be a really really top night .
